"One of the features of the new top-of-the-line Mac is a unique
peripheral... the "Superdrive." Not only does it read CDs and DVDs,
it also writes both CD-RWs and DVD-R discs. ... And it gets better.
Jobs announced that every Mac equipped with a Superdrive would ship
with a copy of iDVD, an amazing new software package from Apple
that makes authoring DVDs as simple as drag-and-drop."
"But now, consider Steve Jobs. Not only is he CEO of Apple
Computer, but he also runs Pixar, a top-grossing movie studio with
ties to the Disney Corporation. I can't imagine he'd plan any
strategy that would anger his friends in the entertainment industry
the way Napster has done."
"So maybe I'm way off base here -- but I'm a little stunned.
Did Apple really just announce not just MP3 software, but also
platform-wide CD burners, and the industry's first cost-efficient
means of copying DVD movies, all on the same day? What does it
all mean, Steve?"
